The mat based Yin yoga practice is where we hold poses for a longer period of time. We will explore a range of Yin yoga poses and the Yin mental approach to waiting quietly. As we hold the poses, finding a calmness and comfort. Deepening stretches to work into fascia.
This Yin Yoga Class starts with a discussion based around ‘From doing to being’ – finding the quiet place within. We discuss stress and its origins including the fight, flight or freeze response.
We then move on to a Nadi Shodana pranayama practice, alternate nostril breathing. This is a lovely practice to start the Yin class with, balancing the subtle energy in our bodies and allowing is to start to enter the Yin frame of mind. The class finishes with a breath / body parts guided relaxation.
The Yin postures include exploring amongst others, the Butterfly sequence of poses which work into the hamstrings and in the revolved Butterfly pose, the quadratus lumborum (QL) muscle, the Deer poses and also the dragon sequence of poses.

From the British Wheel of Yoga Website;
“At its simplest, yoga is an efficient, safe and controlled method of exercise, increasing flexibility and building strength and stamina. As well as toning muscles and extending the range of movement in the joints, the postures also benefit the body internally; stimulating organs, glands and nerves as well, keeping all systems in radiant health.
Yoga can also lower stress by developing relaxation and breathing techniques. As physical well-being and bodily awareness improve, students develop deeper breathing and an ability to relax more easily. Many also experience an increase in energy levels, greater mental clarity and a general feeling of calmness and control.
Yoga isn’t easy. It is tough discipline but rewarding! And the benefits of yoga aren’t instantaneous but the result of continued practice. Yoga gives us the space to take the awareness inwards bringing the body, mind and spirit into harmony.”
